The Associated Press Media Editors has honored the photograph below as National Member Photo of the Month for November 2018.
Thanks to Jake May at The Flint Journal/MLive.com for judging.
Here is what the judge had to say about the winning image:
“This is how you show impact of an earthquake immediately. This is how you make readers/viewers stop in their tracks to gain a further understanding of the news. This is not something you see every day. Bravo to the photographer for taking this vantage point, making a striking image that shows the sheer devastating force of mother nature’s wrath. From the people interacting with the scene, to the changed landscape and the jagged lines it creates, this photographer nailed the image in one photo. Truly, this was incredibly well seen.”

This aerial photo shows damage on Vine Road, south of Wasilla, Alaska, after earthquakes Friday, Nov. 30, 2018. Back-to-back earthquakes measuring 7.0 and 5.7 shattered highways and rocked buildings Friday in Anchorage and the surrounding area, sending people running into the streets and briefly triggering a tsunami warning for islands and coastal areas south of the city.
